Remarks & Notes 
A rare Bird UP U 50 # 43 Rests in CNWs Proviso Yard In early 1974. A number of these units were in the CNW at the time as they were considering buying them. But the CNW bought the N&W C628s instead. The Units sent to the CNW were then retired. But A few others were kept for a while running out of North Platte. I got to see them in action then And what a great sight and sound it was. They were Called whirlybirds Because of the Big cooling fan cages at each end original. From my Collection

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
